RELEASES: Cornie Kirkman, Springville, Glass Strike Is Settled By THE ASSOCIATED PRESS Indiana glass companies wasted no time Friday In getting back Into production after settlement of the nationwide Glass Eottle Blowers Association strike.

No replacement was named for Cohen as No. 2 man in the sprawling department, second in size only to the Department of Defense. Bert Harding, Shriv-ers deputy, was designated acting director of the Office of Economic Opportunity. Johnsons comments on the report of the Kemer Commission seemed to bear out speculation that he was less than fully enthusiastic about the riot panels findings. We felt that over-all the commission wanted to be and was constructive and helpful, he said. The report, Johnson said, was a very thorough one, very comprehensive and made many good recommendations. We did not agree with all of the recommendations, as certain statements have indicated. The report is being analyzed by the various departments and there is a general simpatico of views, I think, between the Cabinet officers who handle icse programs and the recommendations of the commission, the President said.

About mid April, Junior Chamber of Commerce members from both Mitchell and Bedford also will be selling the membership certificates in denominations ranging from $1 to $75. Well take any amount, though," Robbins said. And well sell as many as anybody wants to buy, up until theyre all gone. Only 2,000 certificates are being printed and only 2,-will be sold.

He has eleven months to go in service but his doctors tell him it will take another five months before the cast comes off his right leg. Meanwhile, he is trying to get use of the left one, which has a portion of bone and muscle missing. He keeps the curtain pushed back, just sitting here looking out at his car," said Flo King. She smiled as her son explained that the shiny blue 1966 model car had been his only a few days. He laughed and revealed that a used car salesman came to see him about a car, and upon finding out he couldnt walk, carried him to his car, drove him to Orleans, sold him the blue car, drove him back home and carried him in. Six or seven of Jims buddies usually come out every night and carry him to the car and take him for a ride for a little change of scene. Although he spends most of his time sitting with his leg propped up watching television, Jim is planning to take a vacation and rest up some more after he gets out of the Army. Then, he may go put in an application at Crane NAD. He isnt sure yet just what he wants to do. Commenting on the situation in Vietnam, King said, Its one big mess. I think we ought to get out of there. The guys just get over there and do what theyre told and spend their I members of the 15-nation council that Israels retaliatory attack on Jordan Thursday should be condemned. The sources said the major obstacle to agreement was a Western call for a general reference to Arab terrorist raids into Israel and Israeli-occupied Arab territory which preceded Israels large-scale attack on Jordan. Israel said the attack was in retaliation for the raids. Algeria, one of the most militant of the Arab states and a member of the council, was said to be opposed to any such reference, however vague. One Western diplomat said Alberia describes the Arab terrorism against Israel as a manifestation of a national liberation movement. The Western members of the council also are unhappy about a provision in a draft resolution put forward unofficially by Algeria that would warn Israel of further and more effective measures by the council if Israel should repeat its military reprisal. The Western members also had offered a proposed resolution in the private negotiations but had not been able to win wide council support for it. Up to the early hours today, no resolution had been formally presented to the council. Jordan had urged immediate application of Chapter 7 of the U.N. Charter against Israel The chapter provides for en-forcement measures, including economic sanctions and use of force if necessary to back up council decisions.

WASHINGTON (AP) - The American Institute of Aeronautics and Astronautics named Astronaut Virgil A. (Gus) Grissom of Mitchell, Ind., posthumously Friday as the winner of its Haley Astronautics Award. The winner last year was Astronaut Edward H. White ni. Both Grissom and White, along with Roger Chaffee Jr., were killed in an Apollo spacecraft launch pad fire at Cape Kennedy, Fla., Jan. 27, 1967. The award, along with $500 in cash, has been presented annually since 1954 in memory of Andrew G. Haley, a prominent space attorney and rocket enthusiast. Grissom was cited for exceptionally meritorious service and outstanding contributions to the advancement of manned space flight. The AIAA also selected Air Force Maj. William J.
